    Hey NG. I think France had a rich history of traveling and touring by bike up to the second World War or thereabouts. When mass produced cars became affordable in France, this reliance on the bike...

    I guess I don't get the "outrage" either. Isn't the Grand Bois 5-speed cassette hub and cassette something that I of I's Bicycle, which produces Grand Bois components, designed and had made for the...

    Similarly, my best purchase was a Hozan Fourth Hand tool. Made adjusting my cantis and centerpulls much easier and cut down on my drinking and cussing. I just picked up a used TS-2, so we'll see how...

    Sure. I think plenty of people here do. It'll be hard at first, if you aren't used to the mileage. You'll be tired and will eat a lot. But, I think you'll surprise yourself how fast you get...

    There is a big difference between data and graphs. I like BQ, own several 650B bikes, and I like Jan's enthusiasm. But when I read BQ, I see tables and graphs, not data.

    Those Jubilees are going to cost you a pretty penny and have a bit of a reputation for too much flex. As T-Mar pointed out, the 16T difference is not a big deal for most FDs, in particular the...

    Ah, that sounds like a good range. I carry my kid on a rear kid seat (~195 lbs. total including me + child + seat) on a standard Hetre at 55 psi. I also sometimes use the bike for touring with about...

    What pressures are you using front/rear? I only ask because I find people moving over from the racing tire world tend to over-inflate 650B tires, understandably. I like 50/55 psi for the standard...

    Hi Southpaw. I'm in the same boat as you. I have a NOS LJ 6600 in my parts box that I'm thinking about using on a non-French frame. I like the idea of machining some sort of bushing for the bolt....

    Thanks, SLJ and Grand Bois. I may have to mount it and give it a shot.

    That question crossed my mind, too!



    That's interesting, given Simplex's late move to the dropped parallelogram. I do hope it actually has a little larger capacity than advertised. Thanks for...
  16. Simplex SX610 vs. SLJ 6600: Capacity differences

    I've always thought the Simplex SX610 was the the econo version of the SLJ 6600 (T/SP versions). However, the SX610 has a max wrap and max cog size of 28 teeth, while the SLJ 6600 has a max wrap of...

    I think that one is often misunderstood. As I interpret it, it means: don't ride because you feel you have to ride--ride because you want to ride.

    Disraeligears, Velobase, and the Berto book are three great resources. I'm so thankful that some people follow their passions and make their knowledge available for others to benefit.

    It sounds like the Nitto B-135 (Randonneur) handlebars, which are known to have ends that splay outwards:

    Oops, I see. The site has a couple versions of that cage, one Toei, one VO. I should have looked closer, you can tell this one is VO, it's slightly off, yukyuk:

    Hey FP, yes, it's really quite nice. The path is called the Cross-Marin Trial, and it gets you off of SFD Blvd, right after Lagunitas (heading north). It brings you right into the park and the...
